Seminar to Identify the Structure of Knowledge in Home Economics Education at the Graduate Level. Final Report.
Anthony, Hazel; Kreutz, Shirley
Thirty-five home economics teacher educators participated in a seminar to evaluate and refine material originally developed under the leadership of the Home Economics Education Branch of the United States Office of Education under the title "Concepts Structuring in Home Economics Education Curriculum." The group was also given the assignment to identify comparable material appropriate for the content of graduate courses in home economics education, to plan evaluation of the material and to explore research questions for further development of the material. The content was organized around five concepts believed to be the fundamental ideas in both the pre-service and advanced study programs in home economics education. These are: (1) philosophy of home economics education, (2) professional role in home economics education, (3) program planning in home economics, (4) educative process in teaching home economics, and (5) research in home economics education. Thirty-five additional home economics teacher educators joined the participants in judging the items. They selected the objectives they believed important and the generalizations they believed essential in home economics teacher education. A document will be published under the title "Home Economics Education Objectives and Generalizations Related to Selected Concepts." The work is considered to be exploratory in nature, and some basic questions are raised and suggestions given for further research. (Author/CK)
